After a two year hiatus, The Super Super-8 Film Festival returned to Seattle courtesy of Emerald Reels and Blackchair Productions. This 10-film screening brought the "festival" back into the film festival -- with live musical accompaniment to films by Skerik, Joe Doria (From El Guzano Quartet) and John Wicks -- in addition to bingo, door prizes, sing-a-longs and more.

A gala event highlighting unusual & lovely super-8 films, The Super Super-8 Film Festival is dedicated to keeping the beauty of super-8 filmmaking alive. Through an extensive network of supportive venues across the world, the tour presents magical & adventurous super-8 creations to hungry small-format audiences far and wide. Tour founder & super-8 aficionado, Melinda Stone, accompanies the program as it makes its way across the globe, ensuring excellent treatment and gentle care of the fragile films.

The film program featured a diverse range of creativity including Mark Fox’s mysterious and alluring Untitled Animation, , Martha Colburn’s unforgettable hard-core creation There’s a Pervert in Our Pool, and local filmmaker Reed O’Beirne’s short political documentary, No Time for Shopping.

The live portion of the show is something to be particularly proud of. Live music by Skerik, Doria and Wicks provided an element of surprise and spontaneous creation that is unparalleled in contemporary forms of film exhibition. BINGO was played throughout the evening and the program began with a sing-a-long.
